“It’s not about just filling a job, it’s about matching talent to the need, because that’s the differentiating factor in great companies.”
Recruiting Manager, St. Jude Medical
Dennis Smith admits his journey into human resources was slightly unconventional, but once he found his niche, it’s been a great ride ever since.
One the home front, Smith also discovered a true passion – his family. He is married and has spent, in his words, “Twenty-six awesome years,” with his wife, Katherine, and is a proud father of 5 kids. Although that has meant sacrificing golf for the past 18 years, he has enjoyed writing his blog, jobgeeks.com between soccer and softball games.
Smith sat down shared what it’s like working as a Recruiting manager at St. Jude Medical, the shift in recruitment technology and what really resonates with him about the HR profession.
